National Heritage

‘Founded in 1924 to promote “the study and conservation of ancient monuments, historic buildings and fine old craftsmanship” ... The AMS organises activities for its members and each of the 3 annual newsletters will inform you about hundreds of events all over the country organised by kindred societies, museums and universities, in which you can participate.’

'Dedicated to the protection, preservation, study and appreciation of Scotland’s historic buildings ... We have around 1000 members throughout Scotland and beyond, with six regional groups organising local activities and carrying out casework. We are supported by a fantastic network of volunteers without whom we could not operate.'

'We’re the largest member organisation in Scotland. As a conservation charity, we’re supported by more than 300,000 members and are funded largely by donations ... There are now 32 National Trust for Scotland Members' Centres, Members' Groups and Friends' Groups throughout Scotland, one in Cambridge and one in London. Members of the National Trust for Scotland can join one or more of the groups, usually on payment of a small annual membership fee ... The Centres give an opportunity to share interests and find out more about the Trust and Scotland's heritage. Most have varied programmes of talks, social events and day outings throughout the year.'

Supporter Groups  'Getting together with other Trust enthusiasts, members and volunteer card holders who feel passionate about the same things is priceless. Sharing unique experiences and finding out more about the places you care about is what being part of a local National Trust Centre or Association is all about. From listening to expert talks and going on behind-the-scenes tours to taking relaxing holidays, you’ll be part of something amazing. Our Centres and Associations promote our work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.'

 

There are four separate Records which give access to the Localities where the NT Supporter Groups are based: a-d; e-k; l-r; s-z.

'A UK national charity dedicated to the research and conservation of designed landscapes and to campaigning on their behalf. The Gardens Trust, as the statutory consultee in England for registered parks and gardens, plays a key conservation role, and more widely supports the County and Country Gardens Trusts in protecting and conserving our landscape heritage. The Gardens Trust was formed in 2015 from the merger of the Garden History Society (GHS) and the Association of Gardens Trusts (AGT) ... The Gardens Trust is a membership organisation, which publishes a regular newsletter and academic Journal for members. We also organise events such as garden visits, foreign tours and lectures, which members can book at reduced rates.'

'Our members' generosity enables us to fight for the Victorian and Edwardian buildings people value. Every day, we work to protect Victorian and Edwardian buildings from demolition and destruction ... We run numerous events and visits, developed by our events committee, and publish books, journals and a membership magazine to entertain educate about our subject ... We have regional groups which run their own events and campaigns.'
